Electronic Price Cards
Through our efficient operations, we aim to ensure our competitive advantage and profitability”
Solution has to be efficient- it must reduce the costs associated with price cards, either in labour time or material costs, or both. The costs involved in purchasing, implementing and maintaining each of the three solutions pitched must also be assessed.
“Quality in all aspects of the business”
Solution has to have a good quality finish. It must display prices clearly and be attractive. It has to be robust, and do its job better than the others without compromising on efficiency. It must achieve consistency and standards through providing an easy format for stores to achieve 100% correct price cards.
Technology Trials
“Focus on the essentials”
